Copy My Data is a data transfer Android tool that allows you to copy personal data from one device to another over a WiFi network. The data may be in the form of Contacts, Calendar, Photos, and Videos. The Android app is efficient if you run Android 4.0 and above but will still work with devices as low as Android 2.3.3. The version for Apple gadgets requires iOS 7.1 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
To use Copy My Data, all you need is simply install the app on both devices. With a few easy steps, it will manage the process of copying your data. Take note, that you have to ensure that both devices are connected to the same WiFi network.
Features and Functions
The app features a WiFi transfer function that makes file transfer lighting fast. You can transfer files from Android to Android, from iOs to iOs, and from Android to iOs and vice versa with no effort. Contacts, calendars, photos, and videos can jump in for minutes between two devices.
The one downer I find with the app is that selection of media content can only be made collectively. Individual selection of pictures and videos is not supported. Hopefully, they will fix this with their next update. With the latest version of the APK, the developers fixed a major bug (devices running version 7.0 of Android mobile could not transfer the contents of their contacts list), hence making the app a better tool to all. Copy My Data requires Android version 2.3.3 and above for it to run. Simply put, the Android app allows for a smooth file transfer, provided that two devices running the app are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
If Copy My Data seems slow to transfer files, it is possible that your Wi-Fi connection is to blame. The best way to have this app run with no technical hiccups is to ensure that both phones are not more than two meters apart. The best part about using Copy My Data is that it requires zero customization from the users. It is plug and play. You will only be required to select the data, and the application does the rest for you with top-class efficiency.
I particularly love how the user-interface is so simple that anyone will work it out with no problem. However, the application does not allow user customization, which limits the user.
Preferring Copy My Data over other data transfer apps like ‘Wi-Fi File Transfer’ or ‘NetX’ feels like taking a long holiday only to come home and find the curtains have been changed. There is not much of a difference except in the appearance of things and a little bit of functionality. However, most users say it fixes the issue with old phones that have trouble transferring data using other applications. Even if you have an old phone with a clunky calendar that lacks basic sharing features, Copy My Data can efficiently buffer your calendar files for sharing with a different device.
